Glaucoma Clinic in Nashik


Glaucoma Clinic in Nashik

Glaucoma is often known as a thief of vision as a patient may lose vision gradually even without having a single symptom. Vision lost due to glaucoma is permanent and cannot be regained. Early diagnosis and follow-ups at regular intervals are the only way to preserve the vision and avoid further vision loss. The intraocular pressure (IOP) is raised causing damage to the optic nerve. Sometimes optic nerve damage can occur even with seemingly normal IOP. The vision loss is irreversible and starts from the periphery and so is not noticed early. Hence all patients are screened for glaucoma. Patients suffering from glaucoma are regularly tested using various instruments and parameters.

At Dr. Bapaye Hospital, we are the best Glaucoma Clinic in Nashik offering state of the art diagnostic and therapeutic facilities for glaucoma patients.



Diagnostic Facilities for Glaucoma

IOP: This is measured by applanation tonometer which is the gold standard. This is done on every visit for every patient above 40 years.

PERIMETRY: The visual field damage is detected and monitored by The Humphrey Automated Perimeter. Special Blue-on-yellow software [SWAP] allows early diagnosis of glaucoma suspects, especially those with a strong family history. This is done every 6 months.

DIGITAL DISC IMAGING: The optic nerve changes are recorded digitally every 6 months with the state of the art Zeiss Fundus Camera so that minute progression can be detected even by different observers.

ZEISS CIRRUS HD-OCT MODEL 500: This detects thinning in the nerve fiber layer and optic disc changes at the micron level. It is useful for early detection of glaucoma even before it starts affecting vision and is repeated every year to track progression.

GONIOSCOPY: This test is done to differentiate between the two types of glaucoma i.e. Open-angle and Closed-angle type.

The results of all these tests put together are mandatory for the prevention of vision loss due to glaucoma. Dr. Bapaye Hospital provides this complete work-up to patients.

Open-angle Glaucoma is managed first by medication, and if uncontrolled then surgery (Trabeculectomy). Closed-angle glaucoma is medically controlled, then a laser treatment called Peripheral Iridotomy (Yag PI) is done and if required surgery is done.
